Hello, my name is Twila Quaid.
You will not have to go through this journey alone, you will be met with compassion and understanding to find peace. I will honor your own pace & process, and help you transform and infuse your life to give it new meaning. It’s ok if right now you feel anxious, scared, lost, depressed, or alone, you have come to the right place.
I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of New York. I am glad you are here and am looking forward to working with you. I have been practicing CBT with people for over 5 years. I work with young people, teens, couples, individuals, and the elderly. I am easy going, but also a good motivator, am positive, and energetic.
In addition to my education, I bring to the counseling experience, faith, creativity, and a diverse background, while facilitating personal growth, self- empowerment and searches for life directions. Through counseling, you can begin to learn ways to balance the demands of your life more successfully.
When I am not helping others, I enjoy spending time with my family, taking pictures, collecting rocks & sand, and enjoying the scenery. I live rurally, and many times have come home to find a skunk in my parking spot, a raccoon on my porch, and cardinals in my feeder.

Twila has guided me through my challenging journey. She has helped me learn to embrace my difficult moments, and has encouraged me to really progress in my decision-making. I am lucky to have her.
Twila helps me to retrain my brain to think more positively. I have noticed a great change in my overall mood since receiving her help. I am learning new ways to decrease my anxiety as well as learn more about myself and increase my self esteem. She is kind, a very good listener, and is very patient. Her positivity helps me to be more positive.
I have been in communication with the site and Twila for a week or two now and I feel very hopeful. She suggests ways to move forward and practice self care. Something I never really embraced or knew more about. She makes a lot of good suggestions to furthering my progress and sets small but manageable goals which don’t make me feel overwhelmed and she is very encouraging tapping into what’s most important during our session.
I've been working with Twila for several months (since the start of the pandemic) and have found her sessions really helpful! She's worked with my scheduling needs whenever possible and has challenged me in some of my negative thinking habits, but always in a way that felt supportive and helpful. Having a weekly time to chat with her has been really helpful during a difficult period. I highly recommend working with her.
She's great, she listens and helps me understand things and she pushes me to get things done to get to my goals without ever feeling pressure. She's amazing
I find that she is good because she gets me thinking about my feelings or why I do what I do with questions that eventually make me have an ahhh ahhh moment.
Twila right from the start was ready to hear about what I needed help with and she always messaged me as soon as she could. She helped me realize a few things that I needed to change before I could heal. She is the best councilor I have ever had and met.
I like her very much because she understands what I'm going through and she gave me good advice. I feel like I'm having a best friend that will help me out and keep moving forward. She helped me to reach my goals. And she brings myself up again. I want to continue with her and I want her to help me to go this through of my past and where I'm going through now.
Helped me figure other issues out and were continuously working to make me better!
She is funny and is helping me find ways to control my feelings.
Twila is absolutely wonderful. She does a fantastic job providing information on techniques for me to use everyday. She is very nice, compassionate and she listens very close to everything I say. I am very picky when it comes to choosing a therapist/counselor that I can trust and Twila is wonderful.
Twila is so helpful and supportive! She gives me useful ways to cope with my anxiety and stressful situations while also being a calming voice of reason.
Twila , just with her tone of voice , has the ability to calm me down . She is a matter- of - fact counselor and is firm on her words . I really look forward to my counseling sessions with her.
Twila is a ray of sunshine. I have been communicating with her for two weeks now and every time after I am left feeling relieved and happy. She is kind, understanding, and has a great sense of humor. She is awesome!
Its been a short time but so far her observations have been spot on and her comments have really made me think and overcome.
While my personal schedule has kept me from participating in coaching sessions, Twila is a gem. She sends surveys and questionnaires, and is always willing to provide some insight that I can think on. She wants to focus on her patients and takes time to understand them. I appreciate her approach.
I just started with Twila! So, far it’s going very well for online therapy sessions. I feel she’s in touch with her patients and eventually I’ll get to the root of my issues and start correcting them step by step.
Twila was there for me and pointed me towards other great resources. Very knowledgable. Had a quick chat and a phone call. That's all I really needed.
Twila is very understanding and re-assuring. I feel relieved after talking with her.
Twila has a great personality and is attuned to the parts of me that need growth when I share my heart. She picks up on things and challenges me to grow.
Twila is warm, welcoming and empathetic. I felt so understood. She helped me focus on the areas I wanted to address and helped me create goals to work on.
She’s amazing. I’m so grateful for her.
I feel that I can talk to her about anything and she asks me questions to get me start thinking about myself.
Twila is so friendly and warm. She always checked up on me and I appreciate everything she did for me in the last few months.
Twila is flexible and understanding. She asks the right questions to open discussions and to help out and legitimately cares.
I have had a number of face-to-face counselors over the years. When I decided to take the free trial here, I honestly was not expecting much. To my surprise, trying this format has been one of the best decisions of my life. Twila has helped me more in a few months than all of my face-to-face counselors did in many years. Her attention to detail, caring nature, intelligence, responsiveness, sense of humor, and ability to create thought-provoking discussions has been invaluable to me.
Twila ask a lot of questions and that helps me understand my own situations better since they are questions I should be asking myself.
I am not as angry or depressed when I talk to her. She's a good listener.
Twila Quaid was very helpful to me while we worked together. She was able to take my problem and let me divide it up and piece it up again. It helped me out a lot.
She was always cheerful in her texts and positive in her responses.
She is wonderful, warm, and non-judgmental. I really appreciate her insight and listening ear.
I had a rough start with this app, the original counselor I did not feel any connection was being built, nor did I feel like that person was particularly listening or paying attention to what I was saying. It seemed very much like what was the quickest way to treat me that they could move on to the next patient. So I opted to find someone else to work with. And I chose Twila. And it has been the most liberating experience. She has been so warm and kind, I feel like I could not have made a better choice. Working with her has just been so lovely, and has really put some of my anxieties at ease, just knowing she’s there to listen. Even though we are just starting to work together, I couldn’t ask for anyone better.
I love it so far!
She’s wonderful & fully understands my needs. She is super flexible with scheduling and responds multiple tines throughout the day which I never would’ve expected. She is easy to talk to and somehow gently gets you to talk about things you haven’t discussed in years!
